8 Bit Cricket
The group of four "8 Bit Crickets" consist of antiphotoreactive electronic crickets in circuit cages that sing only in the dark, growing silent in the light like their biological counterparts. These crickets create their own dark-dependent rhythmically compelling songs, entitled: "The 8 Bit Cricket Chorus."
